The Boston Globe Names BAMSI a Top Place to Work for 2022

Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts

Brockton, MA (DECEMBER 12, 2022) – BAMSI has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 15th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.

BAMSI was ranked 27 in the largest employer category.

“All of the work we do is for the benefit of the people we support,” said Mekenzie Berry, an Assistant Director with BAMSI Home who has been with the organization for seven years.

“There is a strong sense of satisfaction and fulfillment that comes from knowing that I can simultaneously make a living for myself and promote dignity within a vulnerable population.”

“We are truly honored to receive this distinction and to recognize the contributions of our amazing staff who made this possible,” said Peter Evers, BAMSI CEO. “As a state-certified minority nonprofit organization, BAMSI is committed to diversity and inclusion at every level of our organization.”

BAMSI is governed by a board of directors that is over 50% BIPOC and 50% female.

“The pandemic has changed the way we work, and the employers who topped the list understand it goes far beyond the remote vs. in-office debate,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “Workers want flexibility, of course, but they also want more support, more humanity, and a greater sense of purpose.”

The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 90,000 individuals at 381 Massachusetts organizations, the most companies ever surveyed in the state. The winners share a few key traits, including offering more flexibility to continue working remotely, tracking progress on efforts to support a diverse workforce, and, above all, remembering to have some fun along the way.

Top Places to Work online extras include sortable rankings and features showcasing companies that are going the extra mile to make their workplaces more supportive and responsive to their employees’ ever-changing needs. All can be found at Readers can follow the news on Twitter at #workboston.
